SEALEY SOLAR PANELS, FROM £24
Going for a nice long drive is one of those little pleasures in life, but it’s also essential for keeping your battery in check by topping it up enough to stave off any future problems. Unfortunately, short journeys, like nipping out to the local shops for bog roll, hand sanitiser, and pasta shells once a fortnight, doesn’t really do that. So, why not make even more use of the summer sunshine while you’re sitting in your garden?
Sealey are now offering a range of solar chargers (generating from 1.5 to 4.8 watts a pop) that can be plugged in, stuck to your windscreen and simply forgotten about. The result is a tip-top battery ready for when the time comes to actually use it. After all, once lockdown is lifted, the first thing you’re going to want to do is jump in your motor and bugger off into the sunset – not waste more of your life looking for the jump leads! www.sealey.co.uk
GTECHNIQ I2 TRI-CLEAN,
That’s not brand new, we hear you say. Yes, we know. But, not only is Gtechniq’s I2 Tri-Clean one of our all-time favourite antibacterial interior cleaners, it also contains a specific raw material that actively combats and kills coronavirus. And, if that’s not enough, it’s equally amazing on your white trainers by the way (a top tip! – Jules).
So, there you go – this stuff is killer on cabins, kicks and corona. That’s why they call it Tri-Clean (probably). www.gtechniq.com
DRAPER 3 TONNE EVOLUTION JACK, £300 What’s even better than having a proper trolley jack on standby in these crazy times of DIY modding? Having a garage-worthy monster with ‘Evolution’ and skulls plastered all down the side, obviously.
Still, this twin-piston, low-entry number is so much more than a funky-looking addition to Draper’s Expert (‘expert’ being spelt ‘professional’) range. It’s actually got all the bells and whistles, including a much higher lift than normal (580mm, just in case you we’re wondering). You even get to say that you only need four and a half pumps to get it fully up, and that you have five (grease) nipples instead of two. What can possibly be better than that?
Besides, it may be a jack, but for those in the know, it really is some high-class tool porn, too. Want! www.drapertools.com
